  • Powerful and full-flavoured, this classic Barolo Cru has baked fruits with hints of herbs, tobacco, and leather, leading to a dry, austere finish. Cannubi is the apogee of Barolo. Aromatically intense, aristocratic, and with superb persistence, it shows notes of blackcurrants, liquorice, cinnamon, mint, and tobacco. Elegant and seductive, with a great structure and a silky texture, this celebrated cru is noted for its extraordinary completeness and personality.

Fermentation took place in 55-hectolitre oak barrels, with 20 days of grape skin contact. The cap was plunged to encourage the extraction of color, flavors and fine tannins, during which the temperature was maintained at 27° to 30°C. The wine was matured in average-sized oak casks for two years, followed by further refinement in the bottle at least 15 to 16 months before release.

TheHelvation and Tortonian soils are greyish calcareous marl, with a basic pH and a sandcontent of 30% . They are poor in organic substances but rich in magnesium and iron
trace elements
